The former high school teacher is set to walk out of the Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge at 9 a.m. (11 a.m. ET).
He won't be a free man exactly; he's on probation for the next 14 years, 11 months.
The victim's mother is hopeful that will change.
"(Judge G. Todd Baugh) made a mistake and I'm disappointed, (31) days, that's outrageous, but the Montana Supreme Court stepped in. Hopefully they'll make it right," said Auliea Hanlon, whose daughter, Cherice Moralez, committed suicide before Rambold went to trial.
Prosecutors have appealed the sentence -- saying it is illegal -- to the high court.
The case drew widespread attention when Baugh imposed a one-month sentence on Rambold and made controversial comments about the victim, saying she "seemed older than her chronological age" and she was "as much in control of the situation."
Rambold admitted raping the girl in 2008 while she was 14 and he was her teacher at her high school. Moralez took her life shortly before her 17th birthday.
Насильник отсидел в тюрьме за изнасилование несовершеннолетней, которая потом покончила с собой, всего 1 месяц. Ну плюс 15 лет условно. Забавно, да? Хорошо, что прокуратура опротестовала приговор. Надеюсь, этого судью выпрут из судей за монтановское правосудие.
